TWO flood warnings remain in place in Cumbria, along with 14 flood alerts, says the Environment Agency.

As the county woke to a day of strong winds and heavy rain, many major Cumbrian rivers remained high enough to qualify for a flood alerts, which means flooding is possible.

These include the Lower and Upper River Eden, and the rivers Caldew and Petteril.

The remaining flood warnings - meaning that flooding is expected - are at Keswick Campsite, and on the River Eden in Carlisle, Rickerby Park, and at the Swifts and Stoneyholme golf courses.

The Environment Agency says levels at its Linstock river gauge remain high because of the recent heavy rainfall.

The Agency’s website says: “Consequently, flooding of property, low-lying roads and farmland is expected.

"Low lying roads, car parks, public spaces and recreational facilities at Rickerby Park, Swifts and Stoneyholme Golf Courses are at risk.”

Flood alerts are currently also in place for the rivers Esk and Irthing; and for St John’s Beck and Bassenthwaite Lake.

A further 11 flood warnings which were previously issued by the Agency for rivers across Cumbria are no longer in place.

These include the rivers Wampool and Ellen, and the River Greta in Keswick.
